I have a 2008 active directory environment with about 30 pc's.  Users are constantly asked to update either adobe, java, etc. and they do not have the rights to install software, so an administrator has to go around from pc to pc to manually update these apps.  Is there an open source or cheap reliable solution to automatically handle this task?  Thanks.

I would recommend using WSUS for the Microsoft stuff and taking a look at these as 3rd party package deployment:

1. http://www.adminarsenal.com/home (has free version, as well as expanded functionality when purchased)
2. http://www.gfi.com/products-and-solutions/network-security-solutions/gfi-languard (not free but reasonably priced based on volume licensing)
3. http://www.shavlik.com/products/patch/ (does both MS and 3rd party)
